Almost every kratom enthusiast knows that kratom is split into three main categories – the red vein, white vein, and Yellow Vein kratom strains. These are not separate strains but are rather the resulting colors of the kratom when harvested at different times in its maturity.
The white vein kratom strains are said to come from harvesting young kratom and are known for being potential great mood and energy boosters. The red vein kratom strains are said to be harvested late and are useful as potential sedatives and relaxants. The Yellow Vein kratom strains are said to be harvested during the middle of its growth phase, causing it to inherit the traits of both red and white vein kratom strains.
Now, while this is common knowledge for many of you, what some of you may don’t know is that there are other, rarer types of kratom strains that exist in the market today. These kratom strains are known as the yellow and the golden vein kratom strains. Today, however, we’ll be focusing solely on the yellow vein kratom strain, and figuring out exactly how it’s made, what it does, and more.
The true known origin of yellow vein kratom strains remain a mystery to kratom consumers to this day. It’s only recently garnered attention in Western markets and is so rare that some of you may never even be able to see it for the rest of your life.
There are multiple theories as to how yellow vein kratom is made. Some say that the combination of all three main kratom types results in the creation of yellow vein kratom. Some even say that the color of yellow vein kratom is the result of old age and that the vein is made by harvesting the kratom at a certain time.
The most popular theory of yellow vein kratom by far, however, is that it is the result of a special drying process, which results in the distinct yellow color of the kratom strain. As drying can also affect the color of the kratom itself, it’s no surprise that yellow vein kratom could also be a possibility.
At the end of the day, however, because yellow vein kratom is so rare, it’ll be difficult to really figure out how it’s made. Unless the industry starts spilling their secrets, we’ll never know how they truly create the coveted and elusive yellow vein kratom.
When it comes to effects, yellow vein kratom strains actually have quite a few similarities to green vein kratom strains. In other words, yellow vein kratom contain potential properties of red and white vein kratom strains, just like the green vein kratom strains we know of today. Here are some of the more common potential effects among the yellow vein kratom strains:
Relaxation. It appears as though yellow vein kratom leans more towards its red “ancestry”, if you will, compared to green vein kratom strains. Most notably, yellow vein kratom strains are said to be able to provide a feeling of potential relaxation to those who ingest it. It might be best enjoyed when you just want to relax for the rest of the day and feel at peace.
Energy-boosting. While not really common among yellow vein kratom strains, some are able to provide potential energy-boosting properties to users. The feeling is very similar to how you might potentially feel when you get a potential energy boost from green vein or white vein kratom strains.
Focus-improving. Another potential effect that seems to be shared between green and yellow vein kratom strains are its potential ability to improve focus. Potential focus improvement is a more prevalent property among white vein strains than it is with green vein kratom strains, but it looks like many yellow vein kratom strains are able to potentially provide this to a degree.
Mood-enhancing. If you’re feeling down or stressed after a tiring day, you might turn to yellow vein kratom strains to potentially help you out. That’s because they’re also potentially great mood enhancers and might help keep your spirits high whenever you need to.
Yellow vein kratom may be a newer kratom type in the market today, but that doesn’t mean it’s all too different from other types of kratom. Sure, it might have a different set of properties and effects, but the overall potency of yellow vein kratom is more or less potentially similar to what you’d expect from red, white, or even green vein kratom strains.
When taking a dose of yellow vein kratom, be sure to always start off with 1 or 2 grams, and maybe even less if it’s your first time with kratom in general. You might be experienced in kratom, but it might take a while for your body to get used to since it’s different from other kratom types. However, once you gain enough tolerance, you might potentially be able to handle around 4 to 5 grams at a time.
Keep in mind, though, that these are just suggested dosages. Everyone has their own levels of tolerance, and it’s possible that while you can handle other kratom types with no problem, you may find it hard to take more than 3 grams of yellow vein kratom at a time. The key is slowly increasing your doses to find out your personal limit. As you increase your dosage the risk of side effects increase.
In terms of effects, the closest relative to yellow vein kratom has to be green vein kratom strains. They both contain the effects of red and white vein kratom and can be used in many situations. Green vein kratom is easier to come by than yellow vein kratom, though.
